Just when you thought you were safe from spiders underwater, you were wrong. This is a video from The Smithsonian highlighting the appropriately named scuba spider, which has evolved to live its life entirely underwater. The spiders only venture to the surface to collect air bubbles, which they collect around
This is some footage from the remote operated submersible Hercules captured while exploring Kingman Reef in the Central Pacific of an octopus of the subfamily Bolitaeninae that looks like a red balloon. The only thing missing is Pennywise holding it on a string and trying to convince me to hang

This is a video of nature lover and photographer Mark Bowler getting up close and personal with a snake-mimic caterpillar (Hemeroplanes triptolemus), which has evolved an ass that looks like the head of a venomous pit viper in order to avoid predation. I’d say that works. I’m not even interested
